Drink it now or cellar for a couple of years. No need to decant.

The Fakin family business is located in Croatia, on the Istrian peninsula, with vineyards spread over 30 hectares including several micro-localities. The particular microclimate and the configuration of the hilly terrain enhance the grapes’ minerality, freshness, and expressive characteristics of Istrian varieties such as Malvasia Istarska, Terrano, and Muskat.

The young winemaker, Marko Fakin, considered by experts to be a promise of the Croatian and international wine scene has already won various competitions and awards with his wines which are widely recognized and appreciated all over the world.

Malvasia Fakin is an irresistibly fresh wine, with green notes, almost herbaceous at first. Then the wine is dominated by hints of citrus and yellow fruit, together with some nuances of hazelnut and honey that also return to the palate. The finish is generally mineral, with a slight varietal bitter note. It is a medium-bodied, well-balanced and round wine that leaves the impression of a certain fullness typical of Malvasia grapes harvested at full maturity.

Serve it cold and enjoy it with oysters, mussels, rabbit, fish carpaccio or ceviche, white fish tartare, sushi, grilled white fish, grilled chicken, asparagus risotto and vegetarian tarts.
